Need a 600 - 650 dollar gaming pc build with Intel. I would like it to be able to run most games at 1080p. No overclock or SLI.

The only thing you'd really have to change is the graphics card. A gtx 660 ti should suffice.


In case you don't want to look it up, here's what I threw together real quick for ya.

CPU: Intel Core i3-4330 3.5GHz Dual-Core Processor ($132.97 @ OutletPC)
Motherboard: Biostar Hi-Fi B85S3+ Ver. 6.x Micro ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($59.99 @ Newegg)
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3-1333 Memory ($43.46 @ NCIX US)
Storage: Toshiba 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($64.98 @ OutletPC)
Video Card: Asus GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB Video Card ($134.99 @ Microcenter)
Case: Rosewill Galaxy-02 ATX Mid Tower Case ($34.99 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: SeaSonic 550W 80+ Gold Certified ATX Power Supply ($79.98 @ SuperBiiz)
Optical Drive: Asus DRW-24B3ST/BLK/G/AS DVD/CD Writer ($23.28 @ NCIX US)
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (OEM) (64-bit) ($86.99 @ NCIX US)
Total: $661.63

Nice build for the budget minded consumer. The i3 does have hyperthreading which does help in some games. It has the haswell processor so if you'd like to upgrade you can bump up to an i5 or even an i7. The graphics card is a little weak, but it should get you 1920x1080 on mid-high settings. You've got plenty of room to upgrade ram later on as well, should you decide to get 4gb more later on.

Another thing you might note, PC Partpicker doesn't have all shipping costs listed, so some of those prices may be cheaper once you click the links. For instance, Windows 7 through NCIX ($84) is cheaper listed, but they don't list a shipping price on PCPP. Newegg ($89) has free shipping on windows, where as NCIX costs 7 bucks more after shipping.

the 6300 is a better processor than the i3 with multithreading, my suggested build is also at the bottom end of your build zone you could switch to a 760 if you wanted. Or add an SSD

I would bump the power supple up to 500 or 600 watts on your build.

I know the i3 is inferior to the FX, but he wants NVIDIA and Intel. With those specifications, it's hard to give much more.

Waste of money. The build, as posted, uses 374W, a 450W is plenty.

the build by ScrewySqrl is much better for $600 an i3 and worst a 650 wont get you anywhere u might like nvida cause it sound cool but its just more expensive first build is much better.ul end up paying 600 for something a 400ps4 can beat.
and with a 650 u wont be playing anything on high in 2014(might do medium with low fps)

The issue with your view point is not figuring upgrade-ability. This console can easily be upgraded to an i5 or i7 and the 650 ti is quite a capable card for mid-high settings, also with the chance to upgrade. Dual 650 ti can keep up with most games nowadays on high-ultra, I should know i have 2 friends that use them daily for crysis and skyrim.
